Research Software Engineer
James is a Research Software Engineer at the Software Sustainability Institute. He received an MChem in Chemistry for Drug Discovery from the University of Bath, before joining the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation PhD programme in 2013. He joined the SSI in September of 2017.
During his PhD studies James worked on a number of software projects, including the Monte-Carlo simulation package ProtoMS. ProtoMS was successful in an SSI Open Call and received assistance in developing a test suite to ensure correctness of the core Fortran component. His role in this project was in further development of the test suite, both code and infrastructure, and in ensuring the reproducibility of simulation across a range of platforms and compilers.
